Reception to honor participating artists Feb. 3 from 3-5 p.m.

Nearly 60 people who received their art education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville return to campus for a special show at the Ben P. Bailey Art Gallery Jan. 14-Feb. 8.

“20th Century Artists/Graduates of Texas A&I/Texas A&M University-Kingsville” displays a wide variety of works from A&M-Kingsville art department graduates that work in and out of the art world.

Some of the alumni displaying their work include professional artists, like Carmen Lomas Garza, Amado Pena and Dolores Price; educators, including Jayne Duryea of Bee County College, Kathy Westbrook of Alice High School and Cheo Torres of the University of New Mexico; Theresa Dixon, a sketch artist for the Colorado State Patrol; and interior decorator Mary Cusack.

The public is invited to attend a reception honoring the artists Sunday, Feb. 3 from 3-5 p.m. in the Ben P. Bailey Art Gallery.

“The exhibition artists demonstrate a wide diversity of artistic direction and intent,” said Dr. Richard C. Scherpereel, art professor and exhibit coordinator. “The artists follow many paths toward creation. Different styles, media usage, intent for the use of the art and wide variation in occupations and achievements of the artists enrich the exhibit.

“These diverse creative directions illustrate the unique qualities that art has to offer.”
